Letter to Lindy Dekker after a workshop she gave in White River

Effect of Bandages on Horses

Dear Lindy,

Just to let you know I have been dying to use the bandages on one of the horses that comes to train PNH here - he has a strange action and has never really cantered properly - his conformation is not perfect, but not dreadful either. He sometimes takes up the wrong lead, but on the whole is not rounded and is un-coordinated.  Anyway, I have been watching him and just thinking that he needed to be aware of himself and also to ’round’ more and engage - we introduced him to the bandages, he immediately gave us a more engaged trot and is lowering his head and looking much more round and comfortable and he easily managed to engage into a canter on both circles - correct lead, good engagement, rounding and easy flowing canter - he looks beautiful.

We are going to build him up slowly - as of course he is not used to using himself like this - but it is fantastic to watch!  Thanks so much for your help and for introducing us to all this. 

All the best,
Tamasine.
